Still trying to make my first 20$ online

25 replies
So it is a big deal for me, either I'm stupid or 99% of the internet is B.S. Five years ago I was introduced into ptc, and that was my first attempt to make money online. I was 12 and from there i did a lot of things but none of them turned as i hoped. Blogging, creating niche sites, affiliate marketing, pan pages...
I am very frustrated, and I'm asking you how can i make my first 20$ online.
I am from a country that 20$ is enough to live a whole week so it is a big deal for me to start making money online I spent most of my life behind a screen and my family always tease me about it. They say that nothing is real and everything is a lie and that people take advantage of me online. I want to prove theme wrong and even possibly make a living out of the internet.
Thank you all for reading all fo this i hope i get some answers.

    First of all realize this, it's going to take money to build a business online and their is no get rich overnight push button that exists. You're going to need basic tools such as an autoresponder and some basic web hosting. and some knowledge on what it takes to build a business online. Rather than trying every trick in the book to see what sticks and what don't you should learn from somebody who is more experienced then you and you should stick to an actionable plan. If you jump around from tactic to tactic without following a system you will never make it. It's all about gaining the right knowledge, taking action, and making it happen despite what other people think. You have to make a decision that you're going to do this for real or not do it at all. It's going to take dedication to succeed.

    Well the sad truth is that free traffic always take longer time to generate, or rather, you can generate a lot of traffic very fast if you pay for it. I would advice you to try some cpa offers and to stick with whatever free traffic source that works for you

    When you say you have "tried" blogging, niche sites, etc...what does that mean?

    Just because you did SOMETHING doesn't mean you did the RIGHT things

    With blogging - your objective is to select a market where there are commercial opportunities and ideally an intersection with something you either know about today or at least like enough to learn as you go.

    Then, you blog with the intention of building a following...loyal readers and followers.

    This means you have to go out and find them - bring them into your content from social, forums, co-posting, endorsements, etc...and then combine your interesting postings with some promotions for either your own products or the products of others that you have reviewed/used and endorsed.

    This also means posting content daily, reaching out to audiences/your market daily, engaging with your market daily consistently for weeks on end until you begin to build that following.

    Remember, a business is placing yourself between a desire for something and fulfillment - and doing so in a way that adds value.

      No doubt, frustration runs rampant with those who are trying to make money online as a newbie. It is not easy for experienced marketers, so being new to the internet makes it a hundred times more difficult. With so many nickel dime deals out there, it is not easy to pick something that works without a ton of research and evaluations of all that is offered.

      For me, I choose a technology which benefits everyone with an average of a thousand dollars a year. Everyone wants to save money, so this is a recessionproof free business, so anyone can succeed with just a little effort sharing and spreading the word about this new technology which will revolutionize TV entertainment industry. Everyone had a TV, even in third world countries, so the niche is huge. Who do you know who watches TV and movies? It is that easy.

      Success to all,

    It's simple. Hopefully you're in a niche without alot of competitors. Just do this:

    - Find a good niche
    - Build a website around this niche
    - Put a squeeze page on your homepage
    - Generate leads from squeeze page
    - Follow up on leads in email newsletter
    - Insert link to your product/offer in your emails to subscribers
    - Wait for them to buy
    - Keep getting more and more targeted leads everyday
    - Then implement backend marketing once you get buyers

      Spending money does not mean a lot of money..just that your numbers may not be right. For ex: if you have ever heard of themeforest they sell templates.

      there is a wordpress plugin Sixthlife Search for Envato Affiliates. Now if you have already done blogging. you can try promoting themeforest themes.

      the plugin can help you write upto 25 articles on website templates without actually writing it each day - mind it each day. just a bit of re-editing.

      If you write say 100 posts in 4 days. I am sure that month you should be able to make $ 20 in affiliate commission from themeforest. of course you need to signup to be affiliate to themeforest.

      there are many ideas, much better than this possibly..you know making $ 20 is cool..

            They are all over the forum - can you read?


            If the OP was "12" five years ago - that would mean he's 17 now?

            If so, that means he doesn't care about terms and conditions of various sites he joins....such as "must be 18".

            That's the best I've got to offer. How can anyone tell anyone else how to make money without knowing the skills, work ethic or anything else about the OP. Everyone THINKS they have the magic formula to making money in IM, bit that's a ridiculous notion. That was the gist of my post. I'm sorry that was lost on you.

          You can simply log out of warrior forum and do your stuff that you do.
          Who actually asked you to read lame ass suggestions?

          To the OP,
          Here is my advice:
          Go and get a job.

              A day and a half later... $20+ sitting on the table to be grabbed.. and they wonder why they are not making money... its called follow through. Its called remembering where and when you started conversations. Its called having discipline in the process of learning. Its called being 17 and being serious about the idea of making money.. but not yet knowing what "Serious" is.

    I suggest you try freelancing. Even fiverr will help you get started. If you are online most of the times, then learn some skills like graphic design and coding. you need a skill to present and earn money being a freelancer. That's the way you can earn money without investing such money.

    Don't think you have to start with IM. start with some outsourcing work, Fiverr, mturk, odesk etc. Find some work that people are willing to pay for an you should be able to achieve $20 fairly quickly.

    After that look at how you can use some of that revenue to get yourself a good course, maybe a domain and get operating in IM.

    Document what you do you could even write an info product "how I started with nothing and built my way to $100/week in 60 days" clearly the $ and days will depend on how well you go.

    There is no substitute for hard work. Good luck.

    In this section, there are many ways to earn, you can follow any way,even you can follow multiple ways, if you wish. To earn from this sector, you have to be expert/ skilled. Without Skill, you may not be able to earn. One freelancer is earning a hand some amount of money without any investment. If you are willing to invest, you can buy a domain & Hosting. Then start writing & SEO to increase your site traffic. Finally you can do the ADSENSE, Affiliate Program or, even you can sell your own products if you have. Thanks.

    It will happen. Once you make your first 20$ online there is nothing to stop you from making a full time living online. It's all a numbers game. Scale scale scale!!

    You just need to have better understanding of this field, that's all, making your first $20 shouldn't be the focus, browse this forum and educate yourself with concepts like funnels, content marketing, SEO etc and you will do really well in life
